This is what I’ve been doing a lot of lately so it felt good to finally feel inspired.
There’s a small project that I’ve been wanting to do and I felt up to it after lunch. I got out my paints and had a go at printing and painting some fabrics.
These are the best 2 I think.
They will need a bit more layering of textures.
If I’m satisfied, I’ll add some appliqué and stitch. These are about 12” each.
In the meantime, my chickadee piece is languishing on the coffee table, neeeding only a few stitches to finish it up.
I’ll be so glad to put the binding on this!
I have a commission for another one since I decided I’d like to keep this one.
With pencil, I lightly sketched some of my chickadee pics onto a white cotton fabric. I will add color with paint to each one before adding stabilizer and thread painting them.
If I do a few at a time, I’ll have them for future projects.
I’m writing this with my tea, taking a short break before I’ll get up to put a couple salmon steaks in the oven to bake - some leftover rice, and fresh steamed broccoli will round out the delicious but simple meal. My favourite.
